Men Are The Expendable Gender: Averted in both ways. Firstly, of course, because greater valxíjir and lesser sexual dimorphism with regards to the distribution of various things, etc., produces a very large number of “uppity” women who just plain wouldn’t stand for it. And secondly, because the demographics and relatively low birth rate are such that neither sex is “stupid, expendable, or going”. We Have Reserves has never been a useful strategy. That’s what mechanicals are for.
